Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera

Problem with picture quality

When taking pictures on the camera, regardless of the amount of light around, the picture always seems dark/shaded compared to the actual surroundings. This seems to be a recent problem. The camera is on the auto setting whereby the product iteself decides the amount of light/flash required. Any suggestions to resolve ?

You didn't answer my question so am asking again...all my pictures are dark and blurry - help

There are two possible problems:

1. The camera is defective.
2. Operator error.

In most cases, #2 is the answer. Digital cameras are convenient, but are sensitive. They have very bright flash units and often wash out the picture that you are trying to take, especially if the item is reflective, you are close to it, and taking the shot straight on. Thus, many users turn the flash off to get the picture to look better. Now the camera has to work differently. In order to get the right amount of light to get a good picture, it will slow down the shutter response. This lets more light onto the CCD and results in a brighter picture without the flash. BUT, the slower speed means that you must be very still in order to prevent blurring, and many users cannot get the hang of it. Also, some cameras do not adjust well to lower light and thus are not only blurry, but dark as well. Try shooting different scenes, indoor as well as outdoor, short, mid and long range in different lighting conditions. If everything is dark and blurry, regardless of the situation, then as a last resort, have another person try to take a few shots. If they are no better at it, then blame the camera. Otherwise, just practice with it until you get good at it. Some cameras are more user-friendly than others.

To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching your lens to manual focus and shoot that way.

The problem is that u know the sony hdv xr500x when u put it on the picture is very dark we have tried it under light too put but the picture is still dark

When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

I have sd850 is digital camera , why when i take a picture at night even i use flash the picture comes out to dark . do i need to use the flash or not. i always put in automatic . if i don't want to use...

Go to your ISO settings and set it higher. take several pictures till you seee wnat works. the flash is only good for about 10 fet if it's truly dark. Turn it up all the way and if it's too bright turn it back till you find what you want. the lower the better untill it's too dark. Try pushing the pictures with your computer and as long as your not a witness for court cases pushing the pichures with your computer can give you some great pictures as long as the cameria got the picture OK to beginwith as the lower ISO settings will give you more to work with as the ISO goes up the quality goes down and as you push with the computer the quality goes down but if the orginanal has enogh ( Juice ) in it and you computer prgram is a good one then you can make good Processed pictures and you may be pushing the limits of the camera. Maybe next time shell out for a better camera that has more than 10 Megapixals and you'll start seeing into the dark, 20 megapixals really do well but how deep are your pockets? Pup a big flood light on the job and use the flash with the best batteries that you can find and maybe you can get what your looking for. I'm a pro but some low light pictures using a tripod and a remote shutter( to remove all shake) sometimes can get the camera to step up and get the best picture it can take. Take lots of pictures and use brade name chips as some of the noname chips can do a low light picture bad I've thrown away all the cheapie chips I had and I only use the Hi dollar ones, and I'm good to go.

Trying taking indoor pictures in the "Night Portrait" or "Night Landscape" modes in the "SCN" command. Be careful not tho shake the camera in these modes.

The "Party" mode works well if the people in the picture are close to the camera.

You could also play with the settings in the "P" command to adjust the amount of light entering the camera.

Good luck.

Dark video

I know a few years a good the best camera for filming inside was one with a single large chip. Most cameras have multiple smallish ones apparently to give you good colour quality.
You need light to reflect the wavelength of a colour, so if there is no light the CCJ's (digital equivalent to light sensitive grains) have difficulty deciding what to do or what shade to give, (the absence of colour is not a colour,) giving you a grainy effect. You can increase the amount of light into a camera in low conditions ie shutter speed but this may give you blurred photos.
